September 30, 2014 – Much has been written over the years about how George Lucas has unnecessarily tinkered with, altered and (in the opinion of quite a few critics) even defiled his own greatest creation, the original Star Wars Trilogy (1977-1983). I previously wrote HERE about my own observations on the search for the “holy grail” – an original, unaltered version of Star Wars Episode IV and its follow-ups, Episodes V and VI.
Diehard fans and cinephiles have at long last taken it upon themselves to remaster and “de-specialize” all previously altered versions of their favorite space saga. The painstaking cell-by-cell comparisons and restorations are beautifully portrayed in the video below. The prayers and wishes of campaigns, such as www.SaveStarWars.com, are about to be answered.
Watch this video and see if it doesn’t bring us a giant step closer to the masterpiece we all once knew.
